What about your company logo embedded in the concrete floor in your reception or service area?

Too Much Water

Pitted DrivewayAdding too much water weakens your concrete. When that happens your aggregate or rock that is in the concrete begins to sink lower in the poured area. That leaves the lighter weight cement and sand at the top. This can lead to very quick pitting and damage to your poured area especially things like concrete driveways.

Today there are is a great number of additives you can use to improve the strength of your concrete. Plastisizers, hardeners, helps it set quicker, fiberglass strands which add strength.

History of Concrete

Concrete is one of the oldest building materials and will likely remain so as we find replacements for building materials in the future.

The earliest users of concrete were the ancient Romans. The Colosseum in Rome was built largely of concrete, and the concrete dome of the Pantheon is the world’s largest unreinforced concrete dome.

A method for producing Portland cement was patented by Joseph Aspdin on 1824. Reinforced concrete was invented in 1849 by Joseph Monier. In 1889 the first large concrete dams were built in 1936.

Since then methods for re-surfacing concrete have become popular giving the medium the ability to be used as a decorative feature as in logo-ed floors and high finished heated floors for restaurants and homes.
